Diet Meal Plan that Works!

The best diet meals are those that allow good selection of nutritious and low fat foods. Studies have shown that the best way to lose weight is not to starve yourself. Eat 25% less calories than normal and you will lose weight. After several months your weight loss may plateau and you may need to decrease total calories in your diet meal plan by another 10% to keep losing weight.
 
Design your meal plan around foods that you enjoy but keep the total calories to a minimum. The average women meal plan should consist of 1200 to 1400 calories per day. This allows for good nutrition without feeling hungry all the time.
 
Most men can lose 2 or more pounds per week on a meal plan between 1500 and 1800 calories per day. Below is a diet that we think is easy to follow and consist of 3 main meals with 2 snacks.  If you need help designing a good meal plan to lose weight, we specialize in personal diet plans.
